Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to examine how young adults who have been diagnosed with neuropsychiatric disabilities or other behavioural disorders reflect about the institution (resursskola) and how the institution has affected their identity. Earlier research has shown that categorization of pupils in school leads to deviation. The theoretical approaches were Stigma (Goffman, 1973), Asylums (Goffman, 1973) and a current identity theory. The aim has been to map the respondents’ life history through narrative life stories, and connect them to the context of the examination. Three qualitative semi-structured interviews were analysed using a narrative method, with inspiration from the hermeneutic interpretation model. The material was processed using a narrative content analysis. The themes were structured in chronological order through common themes raised by the respondents. The result shows that taking a student out of their context can cause a double stigmatisation. The respondents’ identities are understood as changing. The study shows that structural and organisational conditions were big influencing factors to the individual’s identity shaping. The result indicates that the institution contributed to stigmatisation and a feeling of alienation in other social environments. But it can also be positive if the respondents can identify themselves with the collective belonging.
